During the summer months, from May to September, we have placements available in agri-tourism. These placements are in rural Bed & Breakfast businesses, some may even be guesthouses on working farms . Nearly all of the work in these placements will be indoors and involve looking after the guests, helping to clean rooms, as well as possibly cooking food and serving meals.
There may be some work helping on the farm but this is not guaranteed. You will have to be confident in speaking and understanding English, and these placements can guarantee an improvement in your English language skills as you will not only have to communicate with the family, but also all of the guests! If you like meeting people, this will be a superb experience you will never forget.
Agri-tourism placements are great experiences for those hoping to go into the hospitality or tourism industries. These will help improve your English immensely, improve confidence, and the ability to talk to guests in a friendly and professional manner. Most of these hosts prefer a female student, but we do have some availability for male tourism students, too.
